A rendering of the new Locust, NC town hall.

Twelve miles down Albemarle Road, the town of Locust is also building a new town hall. The town hall used to be in a small building along Highway 200. However, when widening of 24/27 began several years ago, Locust was forced to move its town center to a new development just off 24/27. Ground was broken last week for a new town hall in that development. Matthews and Harrisburg have also placed new town halls in recently constructed developments. Mint Hill residents should know this Thursday whether the land at Mint Hill Village has cleared the due diligence period for the new town hall.
